APAL Formule V

Belgian APAL Formula V, built between 1966 and 1967.

The Formula V was a big international motor racing formula in the 60’s and 70’s. Lots of Formula 1 champions like Niki Lauda and Jacky Ickx raced this class in the beginning of their careers.

The Formula V or Formula Volkswagen is based on a pre-1963 Volkswagen Beetle to form a competitive race car with a tube frame and fiberglass body.

The car has a 1300cc engine with single carburetor which is required in this class. The engine and transmission are revised and tuned by the famous Belgian Porsche driver/mechanic Leo from Heist op den Berg. After the revision the car has only driven 200 km.

The car weighs only 465kg and can reach speeds up to 190km/h.

The rear rims are from a Porsche 356 to guarantee better road holding.

The exhaust system is handmade by Ducati specialist Startwin in Loenen and detachable. Because of this every circuit can be ridden considering decibel restrictions.

 

Price: 10.750 euro

 

The car will be sold as is.
